Apparently, these journalists were paid by the US government to put anti-Cuba things in the media.
Further down in the article is this:
"... a row erupted in Argentina between Cuban President Fidel Castro and Juan Manuel Cao, a reporter for Miami's Spanish-language Channel 41.
Mr Cao put Mr Castro on the spot and the president replied by asking if anyone was paying him to ask that question.
Mr Cao has now admitted being paid by the US government, the Herald reports."
They've lost their jobs now, but I think they've already made a neat little pile.
